Great songs with slick, polished production and the right mix of R&B/hip hop, soul and pop ensuring massive crossover appeal. All star guest cast cameos. Sexy but never sleazy. The blueprint for all female groups that followed in their footsteps. This is a real winner.

Omg, I was super excited just seeing this album pop up! This was the bangerrrrr in middle school and I can not even count how many times I’ve listened to it. And it is absolutely still a banger in every sense. I freaking loved every second of rediscovering this album in its totality!

I've mentioned in these notes before that I know next to nothing about R&B. That remains true, but I enjoy finding gems like this immensely. My entry into other genres has been more or less immediate through newly released albums or through systematically listening to the greats of the genre. R&B, on the other hand, is not something I love based on neo-soul, which I see as its genre successor. Neither is it something that I've dived into in a systematic way. Anyway, all that is to say that this is an album I likely wouldn't have listened to in any other way, and I really like it. It would easily be excellent if the instrumentation was less obviously synthetic, but the song quality and inclusion of 3 Stacks at the end make me think it'll hold up to repeat listens. The production is all relatively fresh and it strikes the right balance between sexiness and not taking itself too seriously. I'm not sure if any of the songs aside from Waterfall will be earworms, but they're all distinct and I didn't mind the skits either (which apparently makes me an outlier?).

CrazySexyCool, genau das ist das Album nicht. Viel zu lang, 16 Songs, davon 5 Interludes und trotzdem 56 Minuten. Alle außer ein Lied über 4 Minuten, der Inhalt: CrazySexCool, denkste... Highlight der Rap part am Anfang des letzten Songs "Lieblingssongs": 1. Waterfall 2. Sumthin´Wicked This Way Comes

Not my thing, but that doesn't mean it's without merit. If you like this sort of music I suppose this would be pretty good. But it's music you don't need to engage with. Background, lift music. Or the kind of thing you'd hear in a restaurant that was trying to be "urban" - but it would just be irritating.

Back in '94, I thought I was too cool for CrazySexyCool, no doubt making my way through the chaotic ruins of late-stage grunge. But damn this is a good album. Even though there are literally children today whose parents were conceived to this album, it still feels fresh. By mashing up pop, R&B, hip hop and edgy alt sounds, it is solidly the forebear of the hip alt R&B albums of the past decade.

This is a really terrific album. The production is ahead of its time (although still steeped in New Jack Swing). Singing is great, fantastic songs (esp Creep, Waterfalls). I love the cover of "If I was Your Girlfriend" - hard to cover Prince, esp at the height of his powers. I love the confidence of the group, although I really don't think we needed the interludes, which dilute the power of the powerful female presence on this record. Other than that, perfect.

A great sounding groovy R&B album - was not in my wheelhouse when it came out although the great singles "Creep" and "Waterfalls" were unavoidable. Glad to give this a full listen as I appreciate it way more today - good songwriting and musicianship (noted: guitar solo on "Red Light Special") and even if it's not my preferred genre this is a great album with top-notch catchy songs and fantastic production especially for 1994. Recommended. 7/10 4 stars.

It’s weird that the song everyone knows from this album (“Waterfalls”) knows a little antithetical to the album. The album itself felt more hip-hop than R&B. I have to wonder what would have happened if they had continued. Anyway, most of the songs were pretty good, even the interludes were enjoyable (probably because they were music and not skits). I would have liked to have known the guest vocals, that made it more hip-hop to me, having Busta Rhymes and whoever else there. Overall there were one or two songs I might say meh to, but a strong outing.

4.1 - I was expecting a bubblegum teeny record but I couldn't have been more wrong. This is full-on grownfolks music, i.e. people be fucking to this. I like the big hits, "Creep" and "Waterfalls" - terrific production on both songs. "Red Light Special", maybe my favorite track on the album, is sexy AF, especially with the bridge that leads to a guitar solo. I even like their cover of "If I Was Your Girlfriend", though not as much as Prince's original. And as far as skits go, "Sexy-Interlude" is actually pretty hilarious.

Surprised at how nostalgic this made me feel. This has a generally uplifting vibe that I really miss in more modern pop music. The beat production and sampling technology had reached a place where the hop influence could be incorporated into the songs very fluidly. I think it holds up really well. The Prince cover was a nice touch and the Andre 3000 appearance at the end made me turn my head to check and see if Spotify hadn't gone on shuffle.

“CrazySexyCool” by TLC (1994) An album that is like window shopping in Amsterdam. This hyper-produced girl group puts out a sound that is interesting for low-pitched vocal register—a feature that presents musical problems, but is pleasing enough. Lyrically reinforcing every embarrassingly slutty stereotype in the urban lexicon, it’s clear what and to whom they (their managers) are trying to sell. But the listener forms no connection to the artists as persons. This is poverty. But it’s crazy; it’s sexy; it’s cool. Truth in advertising. I’m happy to take a hit. 3/5

Hmmm... it’s okay, it’s a soul, rap, pop record. Don’t really know why it’s in the list, but with 1001 spaces I guess there’s room for this. I wouldn’t be able to really tell the difference from All Saints or Eternal maybe. Good but not exceptional.

I once purchased this album through the BMG music subscription service. Side note: my parents did not police what albums I bought at all. Additional side note: this was when I bought albums entirely based on the singles, which is not a great way to acquire quality albums. I don’t remember ever listening to anything but the singles on CrazySexyCool, but still 14 year old me was so with it! Creep and Waterfalls stand the test of time as excellent songs. Waterfalls was also timely for me in the mid-1990s. A few short years later my town switched area codes and had to start using all 10 digits for a phone call. I bring this up because I could no longer use the 7 digit numbers that I was used to for my whole life up to that point. Yet another side note: I must recognize that these are lyrics from Weird Al’s parody Phony Calls from his 1996 Bad Hair Day album that came out the year before the area code switch. Im laughing hard at myself because Weird Al is so good I actually thought these were the TLC lyrics until I double checked just before submitting my rating. I sure hope Weird Al is on the 1001 album list. He deserves it. I recognize and like Busta Rhymes on Can I Get A Witness (Interlude). André 3000 also shows up on the last track. Both their appearances are interesting in retrospect because TLC was likely the more well known act and helped propel their careers a bit. Overall this is a solid album by the best selling American female group of all time (#2 worldwide behind the spice girls). I forgot that they were that big. I only remember the singles and that Left Eye burned Andre Rison’s house 6 months before this album was released. Good times.

I wrote a lot about TLC. And then forgot to save it. Doh! This album is "cool." But I think its coolness may have been heightened by the time period in which it came out. It was peak MTV, and the music videos from this album, especially "Waterfalls," are intrinsically tied to these songs. It was also a time when women in music were openly and boldly talking about their sexuality - we wouldn't have WAP today if it wasn't for TLC and Salt n Pepa. (Credit to Kate on that one.) This album is "sexy." And it's in the sultry songs where it excels the best, and those type of songs are also best suited for the voices of T-Boz and Chilli. I was a little worried at first on "Creep," where I was really underwhelmed by the vocals. They're not amazing singers, just good, and some of these songs that utilized their voices better than others. However, as good as this album might be for turning the lights down low, it probably killed the mood with the funniest bit on the album, the prank call of "Sexy-Interlude" that ends with a toilet flushing. This album is "crazy" too. Or at least, TLC's story is. From ditching their founding third member, to drama between group members, to Left Eye almost burning her house down setting fire to a bathtub full of her abusive boyfriend's shoes. Left Eye, by the way, is the real star and stand-out here. Her verses are the best part of every song. Overall, this is the first album that I've had to consider how much (if at all) I'll let the nostalgia factor influence my reviews. "Crazysexycool" is not as good as I remembered. It has a few very fondly remembered hit singles, and while I get why it was a big hit at the time, it doesn't hold up quite as well.

Kan ändå instämma att det är ganska galet, sexigt och coolt. Blev orolig när jag hörde första låten som i själva verket var något av ett intro. Den fick mig att tro att det skulle vara väldigt tung hip-hop som jag inte brukar tycka så väl om. Dock var albumet något helt annat, lite lugnare tempo och genomgående sköna vibbar. Många gånger påminner det mig om underbara Alicia Keys. Sättet låten bara lugnt flyter på, en bra sångerska och ett inblandande av en kraftfull körsång lugnar mig, kanske då av anledning av att jag håller Alicia så högt. Men efter den initiala chocken alltså detta en riktig pleasure att lyssna på. Jag är nöjd. Bäst: (Vet inte)

Soooo... which one is favorite? You like Chili, don't you? I'm a Left Eye fan. Why doesn't T-Boz get any love... I think I'm the only one that didn't buy this album when it came out. And, why would I? All the ladies I knew were playing this nonstop and the Waterfalls video (great video BTW) was played ever 15 mins. on MTV. Though this is the first time I've listened to it all the way thru, it's apparent that the album was intended to be a hit in itself and not just an album that had some hit songs. I enjoyed the 'interludes' and respites between tracks. Maybe I overlooked it in the '90s but it seems like a different approach to making music, perhaps novel for the times. In the 90's you threw in a CD and were basically a captive audience. No Spotify to immediately toggle between bands/albums and because it plays so well, it's easy enough to play it again. I enjoyed it today. It's very well put together, but too much a throwback to the 90's to get more love from me...

Essentially a t-boz solo album with minor contributions from chilli and left eye. Left eye was having lots of problems at this time so barely features and I dont think chilli was prominent on any or their albums. Great production and great but sparse features but really only 6 out of 16 are worth a re listen and only waterfalls and creep at a stretch are really good so this is a solid 3. Waterfalls is still a great song.

It was more funky than I expected which is a welcome shift from the plant pop groups that would dominate the late 90s. This music was at times, funny, sexual, and socially conscious.

Iconic album cover. I've definitely never listened all the way through but I like the TLC I've heard. Happy to give it a listen. It's a bit one dimensional in that it's definitely all about the singing. The backing tracks are just that, just the vaguest support to the vocals; indeed I occasionally wished the producer put the backing even further back. That said, the songs are smoooth, gorgeous, and drip with sexy confidence garnished with a cheeky wink. The interludes are a bit jarring and break up the flow; sexy-interlude in particular completely breaks the mood. That's probably the point, otherwise the album would be one big blur with a few standout moments. Actually, thinking about it more, that would be better. Overall the album gets into its zone and stays there. A good groove, enjoyable listen. 3 stars as is, 4 without the interludes. Waterfalls is, of course, a standout tune.

Sexy vibe, smooth and slick production. This was a really talented group of performers and this album was fire in ’94. Even I owned a copy, and I was never really into this kind of music. The hip hop underpinnings of these songs that made them sound so cool and fresh at the time make them sound somewhat dated now. The best songs ultimately are the ones that go more for straight R&B. The subject matter sometimes tends to be oversexed, which gets tiring. A little goes a long way with that sort of thing. As for the interludes, there are too many of them and they add nothing to the album. Rounded up to a 3 because when they’re good, TLC hits it out of the park. But there are more than a few skippable tracks. Fave Songs: Creep, Diggin' On You, If I Was Your Girlfriend, Waterfalls, Kick Your Game

Wow, this was a bit of a letdown. I was expecting more. It sounds dated and like typical 90's R&B cheese (where they took all the 80's synth and fake instruments and tried to make it sound cooler). These ladies were definitely better than cheese but this album is average at best.

A good example of the 90s R&B scene. Liked a couple of tracks, but wondered if having more than 12 songs of the same thing was necessary

Nice and smooth, not really huge beats. Glad that the interlude's that were popular in 1990s hip-hop albums have somewhat been toned down.

I remember when I was in elementary school around the turn of the millennium, all the girls seemed to be obsessed with TLC, Destiny's Child, Aaliyah, and whoever was on American Idol. I was not, since I wasn't really part of the target audience for any of those people. Around two decades later, I guess I'm still not, but this album was pretty listenable compared to other pop music of its era. Best song: Waterfalls is a better version of Still Rock and Roll to Me by Billy Joel, and If I Was Your Girlfriend fooled me for the first 40 seconds into thinking it was made by Trent Reznor.

The compositions and vocal harmonies are engaging, but without any solo vocal sections the LP feels way too homogenous. Wish it had leaned more into harder rhythms and flows and dropped the interludes as they completely derail the flow of the album

Kick Your Game: Non posso non apprezzare il gatto Red Light Special: Ok.... Sexy-Interlude: Mi piace come rimangono fedeli al tema dell'album. Non solo sexy ma anche crazy. Poi mi sembra giusto normalizzare il fatto che anche le donne cagano che ha una bassa rappresentanza nei media artistici rispetto agli uomini che cagano. In Conclusione: non so bene che dire. Diciamo che a livello di produzione pop/RnB comunque un minimo di cura ci sta, la cosa che mi ha sorpreso è che soprattutto nei primi pezzi le voci fanno veramente schifo, la produzione ma soprattutto l'esecuzione che non è praticamente mai intonata. Non so se la volevano far passare per una cosa stilistica ma è proprio brutta. Per il resto il contenuto artistico è quello che è. Però non posso dire di averlo odiato, comunque me lo so sentito.

There are maybe 2 1/2 good songs on this album. Waterfalls is a no-brainer - great hook, tight harmonies, cool metaphoric lyrics - it definitely deserved to be a hit. I don't think I'd ever listen to any other song on this album on purpose again.

A un certo punto l'ascolto di quest'album è stato come una punizione e ho sperato che finisse presto, ma non stavo nemmeno a metà: linee vocali immature e basi ripetitive. Mi sono reso conto di conoscere Waterfall che alla fine è un pezzo carino, e un certo punto dopo Waterfall sono uscite altre canzoni costruite un po' meglio tipo Let's do it again, Switch e Sumthin’ Wicked This Way Comes. Ero convinto di dare 1 ma le ho promosse a 2 perché alla fine alcuni pezzi sono stati anche meglio di quello che mi aspettavo. La prima metà dell'album la eliminerei comunque.

This album has not aged well at all. Some cool songs that bring back the mid 90’s nostalgia but all being said, doesn’t stand up. Watch the movie “the other guys” and this album becomes a lot more entertaining care of Michael Keaton. Im gonna use sexy interlude as a song and prank P-Diddy.

I uh...I don't think I was the target demographic for this album. I didn't really like it much, but it wasn't really made for me. I also might have liked it more if I listened to it when hanging out with friends or something, instead of while walking around campus and then washing dishes. I liked the "Rapper's Delight" reference in "Switch", that was pretty neat. Besides that, I think I probably could've died without hearing this album.

Nje, den här typen av R&B är egentligen inget för mig. Väldigt kåt stämning i albumet. Sensuella låtar erotiska texter porriga beats. Men även många chill beats to relax and study to. Bäst när det blir mer hip-hop än R&B, som i Switch och Sumthing Wicked This Way Comes. Take Our Time är också ganska bra, fin sång. Bästa låt: Sumthing Wicked This Way Comes, även om den inte är signifikativ för resten av albumet.

Nameless 90s R&B. Wasn't my fav genre to start with - even back then I thought TLC were shit - and listening to almost an hour of it in 2021 was pretty painful. 2/5.

I forgot I was listening to this while I was listening to this. I had a split second thought like "Damn, kinda quiet here. I should put some music on." and then I remembered this was playing. Not a fan at all. A chore to get through. "Waterfalls" was supposed to be the big hit but I didn't even register when the song started or ended.
